Microsoft and FOX One to Collaborate on Exclusive Windows 7 Brand Sponsorship of “Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex’s Almost Live Comedy Show” (Working Title)

Windows 7 to enhance viewing experience of original variety show special airing Sunday, Nov. 8, on FOX; broader multiplatform marketing initiative also encompasses 20th Century Fox Television, Fox Licensing and Merchandising, FOX Sports, FX, FOX.com, FOX Sports on MSN, and Hulu assets.

REDMOND, Wash., and LOS ANGELES — Oct. 13, 2009 — Today, Microsoft Corp. and FOX One announced an ambitious, unique marketing collaboration that will showcase the best of Windows 7, the newest version of Microsoft’s operating system that will be available in market on Oct. 22. The cornerstone of the effort is the exclusive Windows 7 sponsorship of an upcoming television event devoted to the comedy of Seth MacFarlane, creator of “Family Guy,” “American Dad” and “The Cleveland Show.”

Taking the idea of “commercial-free” to the next level, the original FOX variety special “Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex’s Almost Live Comedy Show,” (working title) airing Sunday, Nov. 8, at 8:30 p.m. EST and PST and starring MacFarlane and his “Family Guy” co-star Alex Borstein, will deliver simplicity for viewers — no commercial ad time, no network promotions and no commercial breaks — and instead will feature unique Windows 7-branded programming that blends seamlessly with show content. In a network first, MacFarlane and Borstein have teamed with Windows and their agencies, Universal McCann and Crispin, Porter + Bogusky, to develop, write and produce the customized branded integrations that seek to bring the old “Texaco Star Theater”-style sponsorships into the 21st century. The half-hour special will highlight the comedy duo’s subversive and unique humor with original animation, live-action performances of “Family Guy’s” most memorable musical numbers, comedy sketches and surprise celebrity guests. That night, FOX turns the reins over to MacFarlane for an all-MacFarlane lineup as he also hosts all-new episodes of his signature animated series.

I don't like the Family Guy. Too crude for me.

I rarely even watch anything on Fox let alone animations. The one thing noticed there was the lack of all the ads typically breaking in on regular tv broadcasts while this will in a primetime slot when aired.

(who has time for tv anyways when too busy with 7! )

Are you guys kidding me? Fox's animation is the best on tv, next to the stuff on Adult Swim. I can't wait to see how they pull this off.

Two of my favorite things in one. *Edited by the humor police. We must be serious at all times!!!!!!* Just because it is animated, doesn't automatically make it childish.

That tasteless remark does not reflect well on you. Rather, it illuminates a limited world view and a lack of life experience.

Of course, that alone does not make it childish.
